Cordelia vs. The Radioactive Plot Twist

Connor kicks Angel's ass all over the beach. Angel finally manages to restrain Connor and demands, "Talk to me!" Connor stops struggling and agrees, but when Angel releases him, Connor pulls out a taser and blasts Angel in the face with it. Owie. Angel is knocked back into the waves, and now he's really going to be pissed, because he got sea water on his leather jacket. They fight some more, and Angel finally holds Connor underwater for a minute before pulling him up and shouting, "I don't know what the hell is wrong with you, but you're gonna talk!" Connor quickly jams a knife into Angel's side, then tasers him a few times until Angel collapses, unconscious. Connor stands up and pulls out a flashlight, which he uses to signal a boat offshore. The boat signals back, and we see that Justine's piloting a tugboat. She loves stealing vehicles, doesn't she?

Cordy complains to Skip about TPTB's lousy timing, explaining that she's about to have "the most important conversation of [her] life." Repeating her vision, she declares, "I'm in love! With Angel!" Nuh-uh. Skip says that her calling "transcends love," and Cordy complains some more about how she has to talk to Angel: "Why is he so far away?" She doesn't say, "Why won't he ever know that I'm in love with him. That I'm in love with him." She does, however, get teary as she asks if Skip can talk to Angel for her, which seems mean. It'd be a pretty strange Dear John letter: "Dear Angel, I love you but I've gotta go be a higher power. So, bye. Love, Cordelia." I don't think that would make him feel any better. Well, except for reassuring him that he'd just dodged a particularly nasty bullet, but I'm just saying a message seems pointless. It's all moot anyway, since Skip says he can't convey Cordy's message. Cordy gripes, "Then I'm not going! How can they possibly do this to me now?" She looks at Skip again and guesses, "This is the last test, isn't it?"

Angel is awakened by the sounds of power tools. He's in a metal box, bound with steel cables, and Connor is tightening the bolts on the box. Angel -- rather calmly under the circumstances -- asks why Connor's doing this. Connor answers, "You murdered my father." Angel swears that he didn't, and Justine comes over to insist, "He's lying." Connor calls Angel "the Prince of Lies." Angel helpfully fills in a blank by guessing, "That's why you wouldn't let them kill me at the drive-in. So you could." Connor none-too-reassuringly responds, "Killing is too good for you. You don't get to die. You get to live. Forever."
